Amy Colleen Cole


Amy Colleen Cole, 27, passed away at her home on Anita Drive in South Lake Tahoe early Monday morning, Sept. 11.

Amy was born Aug. 31, 1979, at Barton Memorial Hospital. She graduated from South Tahoe High School and lived her entire life here with the exception of her time at UC Santa Barbara and a year in Colorado. She was employed at Alpine Rentals, where she worked as the company’s office manager. Amy was a very good property manager, who always showed compassion for the customers and clients of the business.

As a child Amy funneled much of her abundant energy into dance, and danced her way all through high school with Marcia Sarosik. One of her proudest moments was a duet dance she performed with her sister during the recitals of her last year. Amy was inseparable from her dog, Tallac. She loved Tahoe and spent most of her time away from work with Tallac at the beach or hiking around Fallen Leaf Lake. She also loved music and was particularly found of reggae. Amy believed in peace and love of all people and practiced it at every opportunity. Amy loved her family above all else, as her family loved her.

She is survived by her parents, Kevin and Bobbi Cole, and her younger sister, Kristin. She will be missed by a wide circle of friends and family and the world is a poorer place without her.

Anyone who knew Amy, or would like to express support to her friends and family, is encouraged to attend a celebration of her life at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, on the Valhalla lawn.

The family requests no flowers. Instead, donations can be made in Amy’s name to Sierra Recovery Center, 972 B, Tallac Ave., South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
